Telly - Free 55" TV - with a catch
« on: May 15, 2023, 03:19:19 PM »
So the guy who sold Pluto.TV to Viacom is starting a new service called Telly:

https://variety.com/2023/digital/news/telly-free-4ktv-second-screen-advertising-ilya-pozin-1235611509/

The TL;DR - You get a free 55" TV + Soundbar. the TV itself is free, and works like a regular TV, but it also has a second display screen below the TV which shows you ads. The ads cannot be turned off. It is also unclear how they're selecting people - i.e. there is no guarantee they chose you. You need to fill out a demographic form to see if you qualify.

Supposedly, they want to give away 500,000 of these TVs this year.

Behind Winstonís back the voice from the telescreen was
still babbling away about pig-iron and the overfulfilment
of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. The telescreen received and
transmitted simultaneously. Any sound that Winston made,
above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by
it, moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision
which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen
as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing
whether you were being watched at any given moment. How
often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on
any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable
that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate
they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You
had to liveódid live, from habit that became instinctóin
the assumption that every sound you made was overheard,
and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized
Feelings don't care about your facts

Probably not - since anyone else can apply to get one for free, and they can likely shut you down if they wanted too
